Hey all

I haven't posted anything for critique since I finished my foundation course earlier this year, so thought I was a bit overdue for something.

Just trying to get into the hang of doing custom blending so would love any feedback.

These are sculpts on myself except for the middle finger which was completely broken from an oopsie I had with a chair last week (ouch) so I had to tip it first with a natural performance tip and then use my blend and white powder over top.

Thanks in advance for any critique/comments :)

Sheryl, the middle fingers on both hands had been munted. One from my chair oopsie, one from that crack that was in my natural nail to begin with. Other than that, the rest were still on, holding strong. I have a job interview on Tuesday though and thought I better fix the broken ones, haha.

Fabulous work, although the middle finger does look a tad fat compared to the rest, I'm sure a bit of refining with the file would solve that :hug:

Hi Lou, I thought they looked really good then checked out your profile. OMG. They are amazing, you haven't been doing nails for very long, how did you get so good so fast. Well done. Do you have a mentor?

Thanks!

Allen (Envy) was my educator, and I also get my nails done by him since he moved down here, and also Sheryl (grafxgal) has been really helpful with heaps of advice! I went and visited her the other weekend and picked up tonnes of helpful tips! Thanks Sheryl! (She's awesome, but she's too modest, haha) - Other than that, just a lot of practice and a lot of reading up on here (go the tutorials!) :green:
